  1. Modeling and Simulation for Design, Development, Testing and Evaluation of Autonomous Multi-Agent Models

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The rapid continued development of unmanned air systems (UAS) is enabling new mission types, in-creased mission effects, and increased airman safety. However, these advances also present numerous challenges to airman-machine interaction, tactics development, and defense. The rapid development pace has produced a situation where new technologies are outpacing the knowledge of how best to ...

  2. Interface for the collection, analysis, and visualization of simulation performance data

    SBC: Perduco Group, Inc., The            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: To complement capabilities of future autonomous systems, the Air Force requires interoperable tools & methodologies to design, verify, validate, assess & operate human-machine system interactions associated with autonomous and manned systems integration. Often the human performance measures and status of each simulation is reported independently making it challenging to analyze the data. ...

  3. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: Ahmic Aerospace LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: Scramjet engines are expected to operate across wide Mach number ranges and typically incorporate isolators to provide sufficient back-pressure margin and prevent unstart. Unfortunately, isolators introduce additional weight and drag, and form multiple shockwave/boundary layer interactions, which degrade the incoming flow. As military requirements become increasingly demanding, an active ...

  4. MHZ-RATE NONLINEAR SPECTROSCOPY AND IMAGING PLATFORM FOR TRANSIENT AND NONEQUILIBRIUM FLOWS

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT20

    ABSTRACT: The objective of the proposed research effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of 100 kHz to 1 MHz nonlinear spectroscopy for measurements of molecular energy distributions, energy transfer, major species, and temperature in transient combusting and nonequilibrium flows. This will be accomplished, in part, by extending burst-mode laser technology to the fs and ps regimes for greater tha ...

  5. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied by coke formation. The coke deposits on the combustor and nozzle walls reduces heat fluxes and c ...

  6. Environmentally-compliant composite coating for corrosion and wear protection of structural metals

    SBC: ECOSIL TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF15AT31

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel environmentally-compliant process to produce an advanced alloy coating(s) that imparts excellent corrosion and wear resistance to structural metals on military aircraft and weapon systems. The resulting composite coating and the coating process do not consist of any hazardous materials such as heavy metals chromium (C ...

  7. High Speed Electronic Device Simulator

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF15AT33

    ABSTRACT: This project will develop and demonstrate a software package based on coupled Fokker-Planck (FP) - Fermi Kinetic Transport (FKT) models and full-wave Maxwell electromagnetic (EM) solver to accurately predict semiconductor device behavior from dc up through the mm-wave and THz frequency ranges. The FP model provides accurate non-equilibrium occupation functions for hot electrons with real ...

  9. Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors

    SBC: Analysis and Applications Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    ABSTRACT: Analysis and Applications and Associates, Inc. (AAA) proposes to develop software that evaluates effects of the hypersonic flow environment on electro-optic/infrared optical systems and vehicles for specific hypersonic flight profiles. We propose a high fidelity definition of the near-field flow, using the latest CFD and turbulence modeling technologies, to determine the environment from ...
